I've been bad about keeping tabs on the World Cosplay Summit's representatives, and apparently this year's Thai noms have been chosen: Pennapa Thanornpradit and Jittraporn Distaprom, cosplaying as Sin and Valentine from Guilty Gear 2 Overture, and they look great-- I just wish there were more photos, without the sign in the way. (You can get info on the other representatives chosen so far, including Dutch, Finnish, Spanish, and the USA here.)


In goofier news, apparently at Gainax's end-of-the-year party they required guests to appear in cosplay, and mangaka Kazuhiko Shimamoto (of Blazing Transfer Student, The Skull Man, Samurai Spirits, and Kamen Rider ZO fame) won. He dressed as Joe Yabuki from Ashita no Joe, all burned-up style. Too awesome for words.
